Ian: Vocals/guitar PJ: Bass/vocals Shane: Drums Twelve North began a little less than a year ago when two strangers met in a garage auditioning for the same band. Almost immediately a new friendship was born when Ian drove to Shane's work to talk about starting something new. Shane was pretty new at playing the drums and Ian was never the only guitarist in a band. They practiced for months with the songs that Ian had already written and called the band BATTLE OF 514. They soon got Ian's friend Brian to play bass. After some differences Brian left the band. Shane and Ian decided to change the name of the band after this to Twelve North and found a new bassist named JR. With JR on bass they decided to record a demo at Exum studios in escondido ca. They also played shows at the 2002 Del Mar Fair, Pounders, The Boomerang, Santa Barbara, Club Xanth and a couple of parties here and there. Soon JR decided to get a higher education in Los Angelas so he didn't have much time for the band and parted way's. One night at a party Shane met PJ and decided to have him come tryout for bass. The three guy's practiced untill PJ learned all of the songs. About a month after that they got a show at the famous Soma in San Diego and also have played at a couple parties and some bars. The band is currently writing new music and is trying to play as many shows as people will let them. They also plan to go into the studio and record an album. Look for Twelve North in a town near you!
